As everyine has said, this is a good restaurant.

The food is tasty and the portions are good.

The sea food is very good. I had a Seabass ravioli was very good.

“Great service, and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2012

This restaurant is a little off the tourist trail, but it's worth venturing the few hundred yards to go there.

The waiter was fantastic, and made a good lunch into a great experience.

The seafood in particular was wonderful.

If you go to Pisa do two things - visit the tower, and have a meal at this wonderful restaurant.

“Bing Map wrong”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

The attached map and the one in the app mislocates the restaurant completely. The restaurant it points to Osterio Bernardo. Please use Google to locate it.

As we couldn't find it, I can't comment on the food!

“Lovely garden”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2012

A lovely little restaurant where you can dine in the herb garden. The food was very good but the service was slow, which is not unusual in Italy.

“A real taste of Italian hospitality and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2012

We had made reservations and our table awaited us in the midst of their beautiful herb garden. The meal was excellent from beginning to end with a warm friendly atmosphere and superb service that made us feel very special. The menu offered Italian creative cuisine with such delicacies as seared scallops in a honey-butter sauce for the beginning. The second plate of cuttlefish ink ravioli filled with flaked sea bass was indeed a treat as was the papardelle with ground wild boar in a wine sauce. Dessert held up to our great expectations with a smooth ricotta pudding scented with mint and an extravagant orange-whiskey pudding with strawberries and a muscat sauce. I would go there again and again and highly recommend this to anyone looking for a unique meal experience.
